Educators of 7th-12th grade students: Multnomah County Library invites you to be a part of a visit May 2, 2017 from award-winning author A.S. King. The New York Times Book Review writes that "Maybe there are writers more adept than King at capturing the outrageous and outraged voice of teenagers, but it’s difficult to think of one."
Thanks to the support of The Library Foundation, copies of one of King's books will be made available to select 7th–12th grade students from around Multnomah County. Schools with the greatest educational and financial need will receive first consideration. Each group that is selected will receive a classroom set with the expectation that the book will be read and studied in advance of King's appearance on May 2nd. The Library Foundation will reimburse funds for transportation for those attending the event as a group.
The author visit is scheduled for:
Tuesday morning, May 2nd, 2017
at Grant High School
2245 NE 36th Ave., Portland, OR
